(Aug 1862 - 29 May 1925)
Elmer Shoemaker can be documented as a photographer from 1900 to 1921. He worked and lived in Ashland, OH, just 32 miles from Mount Vernon, OH.
Elmer Shoemaker is the likely photographer for the cabinet card at the left.
But there is also this possibility:
George M. Shoemaker
(1857 - )
Cincinnati, OH, city directories place G. M. Shoemaker as photographer from 1877 to 1888. Then he either leaves the state or dies for there are no confirmed documents after that. There are no records to indicate G M Shoemaker was ever in Mt. Vernon, OH.
